geomagnetic storm over Arran

Arran Aurora Borealis Photography

Aurora Colours

The colours you see in photos of the Northern Lights are much more intense than you see with the nake eye. This is due to the camera absorbing the colour for much longer per frame than the human eye does.

There are occasions when the Aurora Borealis is so strong that you can clearly see the different colours produced high up in the Earth's atmosphere.

Aurora Structure

One of the great things about the Aurora Borealis is that when it appears, it is often "alive" you can see it move, change in shape and intensity.

In some more intense geomagnetic storms you can see enormous beams either as part of the main display or off to the side on its own.

You can sometimes see the shockwaves travelling through the Aurora.
